Changes to Heritage Lottery Fund grant making
In early 2019 the Heritage Lottery Fund will begin a new, five-year Strategic Funding Framework that sets out how we will distribute National Lottery good causes money for heritage.
This year, 2018-2019, is a transitional year and we have begun to simplify our grant programme portfolio ahead of the new Strategic Funding Framework. Last November we announced that Heritage Grants and Heritage Enterprise programmes would close to new applications in mid-August as we prepare to open the new Strategic Funding Framework in late January 2019. These programmes are now closed with the exception of second round applications from applicants holding first round passes.
